Summary: I have had this tv since 2011 and let me tell you It's the best purchase I have ever made. Picture quality is beyond magnificent, speakers are excellent. You do not need a sound bar. If you don't by this one, buy any tv that says Sony on it and you won't be disappointed.
Amazing value for an Android app developer or other Internet savvy user.

Summary: Well all five stars may seem bold but the iconic design NSXxxGT1 series by Sony marked the emergence of the future of television. A non-tech oriented consumer could feel indifferent facing this TV set while for an Android application developer this is one of the coolest devices since sliced bread.
Summary: I love this TV. My only issue with it is the remote. Dont get me wrong, it works well, I just wish that it was backlit. Also, I dont like the lil button used to move the cursor. My way around this was to use an android app (Google TV Remote). All other features work very well.
Summary: I've owned this TV for 1 year now, so I'd like to address all of these negative reviews. Most of them are written by gamers. So I think it's easy to establish that if you're a serious gamer, this may not be the TV for you. For those of us who are infrequent gamers, who spend more time watching DVD's/Bluerays, news, Netflix, Hulu, or your cable companies on demand service, with a little Wii, PS3 or XBox in between... this is a GREAT television.
Summary: pro: large screen images on it were crisp and sharp. connects to wifi easily and was easy to setup the control was very easy to use. was able to stream my movies and music from my laptop through a certain program and worked great sound quality was decent for a tv cons: had trouble hooking up my sony sound system to this tv and could not hear any sound through my speakers. setting up a sound system to this tv was a bit difficult.
Summary: I could not beleive how good a deal this TV is. Starting with the picture quality which is why I wanted an additional TV for my bedroom and the reason why I purchased this energy efficient super high quality TV. The ease and features of Google TV make it the most amazing deal on the market. The set up is a piece of cake with wireless access to the internet and all of the built in features of Google TV and even the use of my Iphone as a remote with full features.
Summary: I've had this tv for quite sometime now, I haven't had the problems others claim to have, I use a lot of different features, love the remote, if I can't find the remote I can use my iPhone or iPad to control it, I've played a lot of different ps3 games on it and they all look beautiful, I have I higher framerate television but I only notice that difference in blu ray dvd's and they still look stunning on this tv and even better when connected to a MacBook through hdmi,...
Summary: BUYER BEWEARE! Had this tv approximately 33 days before the issues started. Wont turn on, have to leave unplugged and let power drain then reboot on startup. Its an issue that quite a few people are having. You might get lucky and get one with no issues, but with the number of people that hare HAVING issues...your chances are slim. Sony is aware of the issue, but no solid answers on when it will be fixed.
